CHIROPRACTOR MIAMI Back pain is pain felt in the back. Episodes of back pain may be acute, sub-acute, or chronic depending on the duration. The pain may be characterized as a dull ache, shooting or piercing pain, or a burning sensation. The pain may radiate into the arms and hands as well as the legs or feet, and may include paresthesia (tingling with no apparent cause),  weakness or numbness in the legs and arms. The anatomic classification of back pain follows the segments of the spine: neck pain (cervical), middle back pain (thoracic), lower back pain (lumbar) or coccydynia (tailbone or sacral pain) with the lumbar vertebrae area most common for pain. The good news? Whiplash is not a life-threatening injury, and in most cases is resolved within several months. With proper treatment and care, healing is both expedited and long-term. However, rapid and expert assessment after initial injury is crucial to long-term rehabilitation. Fortunately, the multi- disciplinary team of healthcare professionals at PROS Miami is well trained to assist you in recovery, ensuring that that pain in the neck that’s here today, is gone tomorrow!
What is whiplash? First coined in conjunction with the widespread advent of motor vehicles in 1928, whiplash (so named in deference to the cracking of a whip) is an injury that results from the sudden and forceful back-and-forth movement of the neck. Though any traumatic injury may pose a risk of whiplash, the condition is most common in victims of car accidents – so widespread, in fact, that the treatment of whiplash supports a booming $30 billion a year industry in the United States. Symptoms of whiplash may include: Neck Pain and Stiffness Worsening of pain with neck movement loss of range of motion in the neck Headaches, most often starting at the base of the skull Tenderness or pain in shoulder, upper back or arms Tingling or numbness in the arm Fatigue Dizziness For more information, please visit: http://prosmiami.com/en/miami-chiropractor-plantar-fasciitis/
